Drilling Down : Crude Oil Stocks Buying Opportunity / Companies / Oil Companies

By: Elliot_H_Gue

Investors swamped my email when news hit that some oil crews were “fleeing” the advance of Mean Dean in the Gulf of Mexico.

These investors have seen some hard bounces of late on the Street's “mechanical” bull, looking for good buys to the upside. Most readers asked me the same question: “I'm tempted by the bargains out there, but this is hurricane season. Should I invest in the energy patch right now?”

MPTrader - Citigroup Should Hold Here for a Rally / Companies / Banking Stocks

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Either today's swoon in Citigroup (NYSE: C) is a retest (so far successful) of the August 6 low at 45.02 or the continuation of a new downleg that started at the establishment of the August 8 rally peak at 49.88. If it turns out to be the former, then C should pivot to the upside with some power in an effort to re-probe resistance at 49-50.

Surviving Financial Contagent by Focusing on Company Results / Companies / Corporate Earnings

By: Roger_Conrad

The subprime mortgage/high-yield meltdown continues to dominate the markets and financial media. There's a good reason for that: The world's financial markets are intimately connected in myriad ways, and none of us has a firm grip on all of them.

With luck, this situation won't develop into a full-scale financial meltdown along the lines of 1998. The economy, for example, is clearly healthy despite some weak spots, as this week's employment figures and the recent gross domestic product (GDP) growth and low inflation indicate. But until we see clear signs that it's winding down—and not spreading to other higher risk areas—investors are going to keep reacting, and strongly, to the various straws in the wind that appear.

US Car Sales Slump - Perhaps Detroit Would Welcome A Strike? / Companies / US Auto's

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Despite hefty incentives, light motor vehicle sales in July were down month-to-month for the seventh consecutive time this year. Sales crept along at an annual pace of only 15.54 million units. Excluding Katrina-dampened September 2005, this was the weakest monthly sales rate since June 2004. In the first seven months of 2007, light motor vehicle sales are down an annualized 12.03% -- the weakest July-over-December sales rate since 2003 (see table below).

Stock Market Investments - Hanging In There / Companies / Corporate Earnings

By: Roger_Conrad

I'm a glass-half-full guy. I always look for the bright side. And when things look their blackest, my every instinct is to buy, buy, buy.

I've also been in the investment business long enough to know that things don't always work out. Many times, where's there's smoke, there's a raging blaze that will scorch anyone who gets too close.

Businesses as cash-rich as investing do attract criminals. And you can't always trust the numbers.

US Energy Policy Changes and Potential Profits / Companies / US Utilities

By: Roger_Conrad

Talking policy is cheap. Creating and implementing something that works is an entirely different matter. Just ask the army of politicians, bureaucrats, industry executives, academics, consumer advocates and analysts now working on major potential regulatory changes in the energy and communications industries.

The newly installed Democratic Congress has stated two goals for energy policy: promoting US energy independence from the increasingly volatile Middle East and curtailing emissions of greenhouse gases that produce global warming.

Where Are All The Homebuilder Bargains? / Companies / US Housing

By: Brady_Willett

Brady Willett & Todd Alway write: With U.S. homebuilder confidence slipping to a 16-year low in June and subprime contagion fears omnipresent, no one seemed to notice when Toll Brothers reported a 93.5% increase in its ‘Provision for inventory write-downs/write-offs' for the six-months ending April 2007. However, as the losses and/or inventory write-downs at Toll and other builders mount in the coming quarters, the carnage could prove difficult to ignore. After all, following more than a decade of truly spectacular gains, the good times for U.S. homebuilders are over.

Apple's IPhone, An Investors Dilemma / Companies / Corporate Earnings

By: Hans_Wagner

Apple has helped investors beat the market this year. The company's iPhone is one of the biggest events of the year for many investors and those interested in the potential of a “game changing” device. Any investor who bought Apple's stock in that recent past has enjoyed a very nice appreciation, partly due to the anticipation that has built up around the iPhone. The question for investors is do I hold on my Apple stock, or do I sell it before the iPhone is released for sale 6pm local time on June 29, 2007. Let's see if we can help put some perspective on this issue.

MPTrader Mid-Day Minute - Powerful Up Move in US Oil Trust / Companies / Exchange Traded Funds

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Today's bigger than expected drawdown in gasoline inventories despite the build in crude has sparked a powerful upmove in the US Oil Trust (AMEX: USO) in the aftermath of yesterday's weakness and today's lower open. Let's notice that today's action represents a potentially significant key upside reversal session, which would argue that the near-term direction has reversed to the upside (again).

US Interest Rates and Credit Ratings of Utilities / Companies / US Utilities

By: Roger_Conrad

Major credit raters like Standard & Poor's aren't perfect. But few sources provide more exhaustive research on the financial health of corporations, governments and anyone else who issues debt in the public markets.

For individual utility companies, a solid credit rating means a lower cost of capital and ultimately more-competitive rates and higher profits. For investors, an improving rating is a good sign the underlying business is strengthening—and that the company (and stock) are going to gain value over time.

Derivatives Disaster: Deriving The Truth / Companies / Corporate Earnings

By: Rob_Kirby

In an article I penned two weeks ago, I discussed the misfortunes of the Bank of Montreal [BMO] and their costly foray into Natural Gas derivatives trading. In that piece I wrote what are now some rather prophetic words in my assessment of BMO and their 450 million “charge” against 2 nd quarter earnings, when I opined;

“This means that the BMO's ‘long natural gas position' was almost certainly a MUCH BIGGER LOSS – at one point in time – than they are admitting to us now.

BMO's year end is Oct. 31. I'm left wondering why they did not report a bigger loss last quarter.”
